There’s not much you can do without the use of your elbow, wrist and hand. When you regain full function of them, it’s like winning your life back.
The most causes of injuries to the elbow, wrist and hand are sports or recreational activities, work related duties, and falling. Older adults can suffer a loss of muscle mass and bone strength, which increases their risk of injury. Some of the most common injuries include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendon pain, and De Quervain’s disease.
